Abstract

The aim of this contribution is to explore temperature terms encoded as words or constructions in Indonesian.. Using frequency statistics, the present study finds that there are three basic temperature terms in Indonesian (i.e. <i>panas</i> &#8216;hot&#8217;, <i>dingin</i> &#8216;cold&#8217;, and <i>hangat</i> &#8216;warm&#8217;. These are psychologically salient, morphologically simple native words that can be applied to the three sub-domains of temperature (tactile, ambient, and personal feeling). The contribution focuses on the discussion of the metaphorical extensions of these basic temperature terms.
